Amarillo Public Library received support from the Texas Historical Commission's Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission (THGAAC) for Stories of Exile supporting programs. These events will also take place this autumn at the Downtown Library with doors opening at 5:15 and programs beginning at 5:45 PM.

THGAAC's State Coordinator of Education, Dr. J.E. Wolfson will give the presentation Genocide Unmasked: Naming the Crimes, Seeing the Faces.

The word genocide did not exist before WWII, but is now recognized as a crime by the international community.
Join Dr. J.E. Wolfson, State Coordinator of Education for the Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Advisory Commission, for a discussion of how genocide came to be conceived and labeled in an effort to criminalize the offense and prevent its recurrence—with a look into how genocides have occurred around the world, what features are evident among them, how survivors have testified to their ordeals, and what challenges genocides still pose.
